Merapi book – Springer “Active Volcanoes of the World” book series
Dr Ralf Gertisser, with colleagues in Sweden, Germany and Indonesia, has been approached by Springer International Publishing AG to produce a book on Merapi volcano in Indonesia for its prestigious book series “Active Volcanoes of the World”.
“Active Volcanoes of the World” is an official book series of the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior (IAVCEI). The series aims to be a scientific library of monographs that provide authoritative and detailed reviews of state-of-the art research on individual volcanoes or a volcanic area that has been active in the last 10.000 years. The books in the series cover the geology, eruptive history, petrology and geochemistry, volcano monitoring, risk assessment and mitigation, volcano and society, and specific aspects related to the nature of each described volcano.
It is envisaged that the book on Merapi volcano will be completed and published in 2019.
